Course Reviews

Patricia Rice, LMT

I really was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this course. I selected it because it is a topic we should review every few years, I did not expect to enjoy it and feel like I have a handy reference guide to go to with the charts in the course material. Excellent!

Joseph Pipkin, LMBT

Having worked in an institution for over 30 years, I found this course to be in-line with required information to work in this setting. An excellent job by Ms. Burch in developing and presenting the material in a manner that was easy to understand and incorporate into practice. Well done!

Mary Frances Davisson, LMT, BCTMB

Some info I knew, but also learned new information. I found this to be a good course as I begin to re-open my massage practice following COVID-19. The charts and other sections will be a good resource to keep on hand as a reference.

Jenna Kit Milner, LMT

This course was valuable, the material was compelling, and the test questions were clear and to the point. There was a certain amount of redundancy in the content, and I found the repetition from different angles boosted my ability to learn and remember. The content was so interesting, I actually wished the course was longer and included more! Thank you very much for this useful course.

Sharon Genwright, LMBT

The course and it's contents were very well put together. I will recommend this course to the therapist in my office. We are currently in the middle of the COVID-19 outbreak, the information here is extremely relevant.
